  THE SANCTUARY, 1876. Signed in pencil by Forbes, and printed on chine collé. The text is in pencil: "A negro family has just come in sight of the fortified lines of the Union army. The old mother has thrown herself on her knees praising the Lord while the rest of the family are grouped behind, contemplating the scene in silent wonder." Rare thus.
